Kiang Wu Hospital (KWH; Chinese: 鏡湖醫院) is a privately owned hospital located in Santo António, Macau, China. It is one of the three hospitals in Macau. Founded in 1871, the hospital is run by the Kiang Wu Charitable Association and offered Chinese medical services. Renowned doctor Sun Yat-Sen brought Western medicine services to the hospital. The hospital has had four different sites, the last built in 2000.
Currently there is no Western-style medical school in Macau, so all indigenous intending doctors have to either qualify overseas, or qualified doctors have to be brought in from outside.
Currently the hospital is not engaged in international healthcare accreditation.
As of 2016[update] the hospital had over 340 doctors and over 800 nurses. The doctors were trained at universities in Mainland China and Taiwan, with about one-third each graduating from the School of Medicine at Jinan University and the Zhongshan School of Medicine. The nurses earned certificates in nursing at schools in Mainland China, at Macao Polytechnic Institute, and at Kiang Wu itself.
Kiang Wu Nursing College of Macau
